This is another of my favorite bread recipes from a master breadmaker, in my favorite bread machine cookbook: "The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook" by: Beth Hensberger.

This bread has no dairy products except the butter; and you can substitute margarine if you want to.

You'll love it, my family does!
